The thing about men is they really dont know when to give up , so the van is finally complete, sat on its wheels on the ground looking pretty all Mr Bah humbug can say is thats its not up to his usual high standard , its taken far to long etc etc . The boys are scared for life by the experience, sarcastic son wants to go back to the shrink , middle son has decided dad is his hero. ,
Mr Bah Humbug is somewhat like a shedding leper , he discovered he could weld so long as he didnt wear any gloves . So hes burnt and crispy all over his hands and forearms , he cant feel it due to the nerve damage so its fine . REALLY .. yesterday he wanted me to sniff his crispy bits to see if any of it had gone rotten ...ffs
Yesterday I had to go see what all the laughing was , they had got an i pod blaring out while dwarf brother in law had a pair of Mr BHs overalls on rolled up 20 times dancing around doing Hammer Time , funniest thing ive seen for ages if your old enough to remember that era of bad pop music.
We also this week got to see a lovely lady doctor at the pain clinic , she got MR BH on a bad day when he looks like hes had a stroke , his face and eye had dropped and he was struggling even on his crutches but flatly refusing to go on his wheels. So he has new exercises that he can barely manage and he needs to get his walking distance up without crutches , she suggested a wheelie walker but he does have problems with them so he may need to think about an odd looking one that travels behind you , we have the literature for it , so we may have a whip round for xmas...lol ..we have a house full of mobility aids he hasnt got on with or stuff he uses once in a while . Its the unpredictability of his damage that makes it hard to find anything for daily use . The GPS have already been chowing about his changed perscription . The clinic says the same thing MR BH does , that drugging him on a daily basis to a huge level would do him no favours . He needs steady non opiate pain relief most of the time with heavy dose medication when hes acute , because being unconscious is all they can do when the pain is at that level . So he now has a very large quantity of industrial medication for as and when, his last box lasted him 18 months, it avoids him having to go to casualty on a regular basis and from the amount he uses he obviously isnt drug seeking . The 3 day rule still applies, seek medical help after 3 days or if he has urinary output problems.
So lifes pretty boring unless you remember Hammer Time
